The art received 34,745 page views and was bid on 22 times.
UPDATE: For confidentiality reasons, my contact at Heritage Auction couldn’t disclose the winning bidder, but he noted that when the auction opened a month ago, the starting bid was only $25,000. The night before the auction closing, the bid had got up to $85,000 which quickly incremented to $90k. With the Buyer?s Premium the final tally was $107,550. The Buyers Premium is the auction house’s costs. The only other known Watterson piece that is available (or will be) for auction is the oil painting he donated to the Team Cul de Sac. I’ll keep you posted on that. Save your pennies. I’m sure this auction just boosted the value of the oil painting a bit.
